"...Exhilarating.....Anita Mui and Maggie Cheung approach their iconic roles with gusto..."
A bizarre, cartoonish actioner about a trio of beautiful, deadly woman warriors known as Wonderwoman, Thief Catcher, and Invisible Girl. These girls join forces against an ancient Ming Dynasty eunuch who is trying to resurrect China's imperialist past by collecting male babies and storing them up to form a new nation. An effervescent yet exhilarating slice of Hong Kong action, the film is sometimes interpreted as a parable about the potential invincibility of a united, democratic China, with the three fighters signifying Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the mainland. Sequel: EXECUTIONERS.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
The Heroic Trio
Michelle Yeoh (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, TOMORROW NEVER DIES), Anita Mui (Jet Li's THE ENFORCER, RUMBLE IN THE BRONX), and Maggie Cheung (SUPERCOP) form an unstoppable combination as three powerful martial arts experts -- each with her own secret superhero identity -- who band together to battle the ultimate evil! Their foe is a demented but powerful wizard who believes that if he kidnaps all the babies in China he can build a demonic ruling class and eventually dominate the world. With everything on the line, it's up to the Heroic Trio -- Shadow Fox, Mercy, and Invisible Woman -- to rise up and stop him! A big screen adventure that's like CHARLIE'S ANGELS meets THE TERMINATOR, you're sure to love all the hard-hitting fun in this action-packed martial arts fantasy!
Babies are being kidnapped by an evil mastermind who plans to use one of his victims as a maniacal puppet emperor of China. It is up to a superhuman trio of female warriors to stop the madness.
